Shower April with Some IP Communications Events Please

April 14, 2010

For some reason, March, May and October are slam-packed full in the East and West with IP communications-related conferences; whereas, April, July, August, and December are almost empty. The company who pays me once per month is Super Technologies (a mult-national group with multi-national vendors and customers in the IP communications, social networking, medical and media spaces), and either DIDXchange is a supporting organization sponsor or media partner OR our Techistan is a press/media partner at some the most inspiring conferences in both areas of the world. 

So, let me share with you a few in the East during April 2010, a slow month for the West. Believe me, if you have a cell phone or device that lets you insert a SIM card, you'll stay connected more cheaply than in the West.

COMNET'10 and IT EXPO is scheduled April 16-17, 2010 in Karachi, Pakistan at the Usman Institute of Technology. I've been to Pakistan many times and to Usman IT a few times. It's a colorful nation of women in beautiful sparkly shalwar kameez, entrepreneurs on every street, traffic that is somewhat like an ad hoc ballet where everyone seems to know how to move perfectly. The last time I was in Pakistan, I took a train ride from Karachi to Islamabad and visited in between Multan, Rawalpindi, Sialkot, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Lahore and many smaller cities and villages to meet with every wiress/mobile operator and PSTN carrier I could.



Bring the Best of the West to CommunicAsia Conference: You!

April 13, 2010

 Over 4000 businesses and entrepreneurs have registered for CommunicAsia scheduled for June 15-18, 2010: Asia Broadcast Satellite, Accenture, BlackBerry, Comba Telecom, Consistel, Dialogic (also a respected member of the TMC community and sponsor, exhibitor, presenter, innovator at ITEXPO events), Emerson Network, Eutelsat, Harmonic, Huawei, Inmarsat, Intelsat, JDSU, MEASAT, DIDXchange, RAD Data Communications, Samsung Electronics, SES WORLD SKIES, Skype Technologies, ST Teleport, THAICOM, Telekom Malaysia, Yahoo!, ZTE, Techistan.


We're seeing more participation from the Western Hemisphere each year at CommunicAsia and other conferences in the East. More collaborations between the big names as mentioned in the first paragraph and more like your company in the East and West, mean global business triumph!
 
CommunicAsia is truly one of my favorite IP communications/entertainment/broadcast/ICT event in the East. Last year we gained many new relationships to sponsor other conferences in Asia, new DID phone numbers areas for sale on DIDX, and hundreds of leads of entrepreneurs, inventors, enterprises, technologies to fill our Techistan for years.

Check the Site Map here http://www.mktg-ses.com/Email/CMMA10/index.html and invite others to this pre-networking area and to register and participate as exhibitor, sponsor, or presenter before the deadline.

CommunicAsia advertises in TMC's Internet Telephony magazine, a very smart choice. Will we see any of the TMC team at CommunicAsia this year?

Exposing Ourselves to Info from Outside our Little Confining Circles

March 17, 2010

It's tough to step outside of my little circle, but I know I need to. We all do. So I found something new. It's IT-OC.

IT-OC.com is a hub of Egypt ICT showcase, an online gathering of people like you and me in the East and West, sharing ideas, technologies, services, inventions, interviews, events and more.  They recently published some articles about the iTIndoComm May 5-7, 2010 conference that our DIDXchange is media partner and our addition of New Zealand DID on DIDX at 99 cents per month.
